JONNY P’S NEW EP GOOD TO YOU OUT TODAY
TO PERFORM WITH THE NASHVILLE BALLET AND AT NASHVILLE’S “MUSIC CITY JULY 4TH” CELEBRATION
“…IT SHOWS THE BRONX-BORN, NASHVILLE-BASED SINGER TO BE A SOUL STYLIST STRADDLING THE LINE BETWEEN CLASSIC AND CONTEMPORARY.” –Billboard
Jonny P’s highly anticipated new EP, Good To You, is out today on Big Picnic Records (purchase here). In celebration of the release, an acoustic video of the title track can now be viewed/shared HERE.
Good To You was produced by guitarist Goffrey Moore and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Frank Ocean, Jamie XX, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson) and features James Gadson (Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Herbie Hancock, Beck, BB King, Jamie Lidell) on drums.
In support of the release, Jonny P will join the Nashville Ballet for their “Emergence” series June 1-3. More info and tickets can be found here. Additionally, the following month, he’ll perform at the Nashville’s “Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th” celebration alongside Chris Young, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, the Sisterhood and the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. More information can be found here.
Released to widespread acclaim, Billboard praises, “…it shows the Bronx-born, Nashville-based singer to be a soul stylist straddling the line between classic and contemporary,” while Atwood Magazine describes, “…a pulsating bassline, southern styled guitar riffs and subtle background horns serve as fluid waves for P’s smooth sailing vocals and storytelling…the acoustic take, definitely an ode to the minimalism of the song, captures an insanely stylish and crooning Jonny P…” Moreover, Glide Magazine declares, “With a sound reminiscent of the greats of Motown, Jonny is poised to carve his modern soul mark in the landscape of R&B. His vocals are nothing but refreshing and his style is inspiring to many that crave true artistry,” and All Things Go asserts, “Jonny P takes us back to the pure days of soul…”
“Suppose all music is apple pie,” says Jonny P. “Every genre is apple pie, but soul music is the only one that’s served hot with ice cream on the side.” He continues, “It’s so important to me to add to the story of soul music. I don’t want to create a record that has to go up against Sam Cooke or Otis Redding or anybody like that. If I tried to create some thing that sounds identical to them, I personally would never spin that record. It’s just a moment in time that can’t be re-created. Hopefully I can help carry it forward because more than anything else, soul music is about right now.”
Jonny P was born and raised in the Bronx and now calls Nashville home. In addition to music, he recently wrapped his first acting role in the upcoming film by director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal (who won Oscars for The Hurt Locker), a fictionalized chronicle of the Detroit riots of 1967.
